I recently hit up my local Sprint store (applying to work there, I've always kind of wanted to anyways, figured why not) and I know the 3 or 4 people that work there fairly well. I mentioned this phone and the manager (name will not be given =P) was kind of surprised I'd heard about it. She said something about it being 'announced' in late June this year, which means we really can't hope for too much.
The main real estate I'm interested in on this phone is for one, the projected screen size. At 4.3", I'd assume this is as big as a cell phone screen CAN get while still being able to be tossed into a pocket. Something else is the processor. With something like that rocking in it, I can only imagine good things for ROM space and amounts of RAM. As for it being made by HTC, I'm not sure. The whole senseUI thing, I could deal without. I've made my Moment into exactly what I need it to be via third party software (on and off market), so I really don't consider the add-ons that come with the phone to be a major choice. I choose based on hardware now, as far as Android phones go. And this thing, well it looks to be some pretty damned good hardware.

That is what I'm assuming as well, they HAVE been boasting about it, yet they have not one single device *aside from a hotspot thing* that can use this. If they're spending money advertising it, I can only assume they have plans for something like this; I.E. this phone's name Supersonic,
possibly suggesting faster download speeds coupled with a(the) faster(est) phone. Logic would break it into this.
As far as coupling with Comcast, Time Warner, and Bright House, I don't really see much coming from that. On the other hand though, with Intel and Google, I can see that happening. All of a sudden Sprint's got 4g speeds and coverage with the ONLY device capable of using it; who's going to be paying attention to them now? Just about everyone. If this DOES happen, I can see AT&T start to turn and throw the knives at Sprint and begin to shy from Verizon, in theory this is.
